Fodor's Review

Right along the shoreline and the edge of Liberty Bay Park, the center is raised above the water and jam-packed with exhibits of local sea creatures. An inter-tidal touch tank lets kids feel sea anemones, sea urchins, and starfish, while other displays house crabs, jellyfish, and plants. Puppets, puzzles, murals, and videos help youngsters learn more about what they see. Don't miss the giant Pacific octopus in a 2,000-gallon tank beneath the center. A small gift shop fronts

the building, and the center organizes special activities during Poulsbo festivals.
